Storyline

Finch and Root are on a mission to save the Machine, after she gave herself up to Samaritan on her own volition to save Root and more specifically Finch. As Samaritan tries to complete its own mission in destroying the Machine while making what it sees as necessary corrections to the world order, Finch and Root have the difficult task of locating the Machine, who has been silent of late. When Finch and Root do hear from the Machine again, she sends them on a scavenger hunt without them knowing what all the pieces are supposed to accomplish. Finch and Root are without Reese who too has been silent. Finch has another difficult choice to make when he does eventually get an indirect message from Reese. Little do Finch and Root know that there is someone else who is trying to destroy Samaritan, albeit working on a different motive. Meanwhile, Dominic is holding Elias, Reese and Fusco hostage as he tries to negotiate the same deal Elias seemed to have with Reese, Finch and Fusco. Some may ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The title refers to God's name, written with the Hebrew characters known as the Tetragrammaton, and appears almost 7,000 times in the Old Testament. In Hebrew it is normal to write only consonants, but because of the Commandment against using God's name in vain, correct pronunciation of the name is lost. Name YHWH is preserved in texts but sometimes has added vowel marks from word Adonai, indicating that instead of YHWH one should read Adonai (Lord). English Bibles usually translate it as "Lord of Hosts," or simply as "Lord." One plausible version of OT God's name might be "Yahweh," although some use "Jehovah" instead; that stems from erroneous reading of YHWH with vowels of Adonai. See more »

Goofs

When Finch and Root's elevator finally starts moving, a camera shot through the shotgun blast hole shows the arms dealer and the room moving up (ie the elevator is going down). But this would require the outer door to be traveling with the elevator, instead of staying on its floor. We should have instead seen the back of the outer door through the hole. See more »

Father, I failed you..........
6 May 2015 | by pavllinaSee all my reviews

This episode was so complex - it had a little bit of everything I needed to see. It kept me thrilled, amused, shocked, amazed and in the end it sort of just grabbed me by my hand strong enough to make me believe, believe that there is a chance for the Machine. What made it so good, undoubtedly, was the job done by the actors/writers. I will truly miss Glasses, Cocoa Puffs and Wonderboy (Fusco too, of course) throughout this summer. I am psyched about Sameen's storyline, I can't wait for the next season(I hope there is one). I am so grateful and happy that this TV show exists, I never loved anything so much in my life.
